Coinfest is a global Bitcoin festival founded by Andew Wagner in Vancouver in 2013. It is held in April of each year in cities around the world and celebrates the alleged birthday of Satoshi Nakamoto, the mythical inventor of Bitcoin and the blockchain.
On 6 April, 2016 Bitcoin Wednesday will host its own official Coinfest event in Amsterdam during its 34th consecutive monthly conference on the digital currency revolution. Bitcoin Wednesday’s 2016 Coinfest will run parallel to its traditional Bitcoin Wednesday conference and will feature an evening of networking, dinner and drinks with cash bar and restaurant. Bitcoin will be an accepted form of payment throughout the evening. Admission to Bitcoin Wednesday’s Coinfest Amsterdam 2016 is completely free.
The concept of Coinfest originated in Vancouver by Andrew Wagner, the public relations manager for Vancouver’s Bitcoin Cooperative, community manager for the online publication NewsBTC and president of the North American chapter of the Cryptor Foundation endowment fund.
